Does sweet corn stay fresher if kept in the husk or out of the husk? Does sweet corn stay fresher in a bag in the refrigerator or at room temperature?

In the husk, in the fridge -- but keeping it in the husk is a matter of preference. You can shuck it and then store it, too.

I keep mine in a plastic grocery bag so that a little air can still circulate around it, otherwise you'll get a slimy feel to the husk when you take the ears out of the fridge (if it doesn't get eaten quickly).
